The Littlest Client #152


O'Sullivan led me to a door in the back of the shop. He turned as we reached it and motioned for me to hold my arms up so he could frisk me.

I shook my head.

"You can't go back there with a piece," he said.

I pulled my pistol, but instead of handing it to him I stuck it in his gut.

"Walk," I said softly.

He turned and opened the door.

The back was a huge warehouse with crates stacked up everywhere.

I didn't hear whatever it was that came up from behind and dropped oblivion on me...

    It's funny to think about guys in books and movies and TV shows getting knocked out so frequently. I think about James Garner. If he had really been knocked out as many times as he was on Maverick and The Rockford Files he would've been a vegetable!

    In football over here (you call it soccer) young players at school are no longer allowed to do ‘headers’ (using the head to pass the ball, score goals etc) for fear of prompting old timers disease early in later life!
